. and that is there's been indecision and uncertainty in washington on our middle east policy, whether it's being tougher on benjamin netanyahu for defending israel than they've been on iran for not having nuclear weapons. whether it is the conflicting approaches to the middle east peace process, et cetera. so there's a vacuum that has to be filled. the u.s. has to step up and provide leadership. president morsi in cairo called mr. jabari, the terrorist who was killed, a martyr. the muslim brotherhood does have a close relationship with hamas. iran has given hundreds of millions of dollars to hamas in recent months. so the region is in turmoil. the u.s. should step up firm for our ally, make clear where we are, try to get turkey and egypt -- both of whom have been sympathetic to hamas -- to stand down. >> that's not happening. john, u.s. foreign policy in the middle east, maybe elsewhere, but in the middle east right now in the wake of libya and benghazi, we are at low ebb, john, in the eyes i dare say of middle eastern countries and in the eyes of european countries and maybe in the eyes of asia
